The 20” dump truck is …........almost ready. The klaxon horns are still missing on the roof. I hope this contribution will not be removed :) I have made a lot of blogs about the building process. It was difficult for me to choose the right wood combination. After it was finished I had the frame preferably made of a dark wood. The visor was the most diffecult to made. Below a lot of pictures. The most are made by my daughter.

Thanks for watching.

If it wasn’t for the wood grain it would look like a real truck sitting there waiting to be driven off, where’s the keys JAN?
My heart skipped a beat when I realized you were posting it today.
It’s so beautiful!!!
